On Monday, I posted about how you can send in your photos to appear on the Orvis News, and I’ve already received some great submissions. I’ll post some readers’ photos as singles, others in batches, or however else seems appropriate. A few of these had been languishing in my inbox for some months, while others arrived just yesterday.

Please keep them coming!
